In Response To Randy Adcox Response To Ann Piscitelli Judd On Community Council Facebook Page

Randy Adcox since you responsed to Ann Piscitelli Judd about Nehemiah Smith I felt compelled to do so also.

You say, “Nehemiah Smith is not in any way connected to the city administration, though he IS an ardent supporter of this current city council, and is present at almost every council meeting each month.”

Mr. so you have an issue with Mr. Smith being a supporter of the current city council because he is present almost every month. So are some of the Special Cs and you included.

You say, “Mr. Smith is actually a pastor with a tendency to become quite animated during the city council meetings, and often resorts to insults and name calling when referring to other speakers or persons who have made what he considers improper or incorrect statements about the council members themselves, or about decisions they have made.”

Mr. so why do you feel that Mr. Smith has to become animated? Really? Can that be connected to the Shaved Ms that we have seen online when referring to me and some other Black folk? I really didn’t think anything of the Shaved M thingy until somebody asked me did I know what it meant and I say no. They say it means Shaved Monkey. Oh well. That is what they said that they were saying.

Mr. you say that Mr. Smith often resorts to insults and name calling so could you give an example of what he said that is/was an insult and a name called?

You say, “It was in direct response to Mr. Smith’s somewhat loud and “preachy” comments at the last city council meeting, that Mayor Combs reiterated the purpose of the “public speaking” portion of the meeting, and reminded everyone in attendance that this was *not* the time for showboating, grandstanding or “preaching a sermon”.

Mr. now that is interesting you say Mr. Smith is somewhat loud and “preachy.” Really! He like some other Black folk speak loud so we can be heard. When we talk loud folk like you want to paint a picture that we are angry. Not! We talk loud so we can be heard and seen. We talk loud because we say what we mean and mean what we say.

Mr. so you feel some type a way because you have an issue with a Black man being able to stand up in public and articulate a message before a Caucasian and other audience. So because he saying everything that you don’t want to hear oh he has to be showboating, grandstanding and preaching? Really!

You say, “In all fairness to Mr. Smith, he has the belief that the majority of the opposition to this council is racially motivated, and therefore he feels obligated to “call out” those who he sees as questioning the decisions of this council, due to it being a 4-3 black majority.”

Mr. I am going to go out on a limb and don’t normally do this but I believe I am right about this. Hell yeah Mr. Smith know it is all about race. He is calling out those who make ignant comments and will just simply flat out lie, lie, lie. Hell yeah some Special Cs expressed what they were going to do if the council became a Back Majority before the 2003 election. Some got mad after the council. They still mad!

You say, “And while it may be true that there are those in this city who are uncomfortable with the “black majority” of our current city council, to suggest that everyone who disagrees with, or questions the decisions of this council does so because of race, is frankly neither true nor fair.”

Mr. the majority of the issues raised by you and the other Special Cs are directed to Councilmen Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell and the last time I checked they both were Black. But y’all really, really come after Andre. When it is clear that y’all have a problem with the progress being made to the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount. The Event Center going downtown and now the Hotel/Parking Deck y’all bout to go damn crazy.

You say, “There are a great many citizens in this city of ALL ethnicities (black, white, Asian, Latino, native American) who question the decisions and motives of this current city council.”

Mr. it is okay for anyone to question the council but what ain’t okay is the lies and when they respond to y’all, y’all play the vicitim. It does not matter what the outcome of the responses y’all receive, some continue to keep doing the same thing and receiving the same results. Some just lie, lie, lie but then when the lies are dispelled then they try to twist or change the narrative.

You say, “Everybody who disagrees with this council (or Mr Nehemiah Smith!) isn’t a racist, and such implications only tend to further divide our city at a time when we need to be coming together.”

Mr. I don’t recall Mr. Smith calling everyone by name when he disagrees with them but just like on yesterday he will call out the name of the person he is addressing.

And I got to end on this note, during the previous council meeting from last night he talked about eating at a restaurant and he had soup and saltines and gave a narrative. Hell before the meeting was over some Special Cs had done got online and said he called Caucasians a racial slur. Not he didn’t! My videos don’t lie.

Mr.Randy Adcox there are some Black folk who are not afraid to speak out publicly. However we recognize and understand that speaking out comes with a price but we ain’t scared!

We refuse to allow Ignant Special Cs and Safe Black folk to attack our Black Leaders and our Caucasian Leaders who want what is best for Rocky Mount.

Now I close by saying I believe I can speak for Mr. Smith again by saying we ain’t mad with anybody.

We are for justice no matter who it is for or against!

We have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

We are Unbought and Unbossed!

Now Run & Tell That!

Rocky Mount NC – I Have Been Engaged In Rocky Mount Politics Long Before The Majority Of The Council Members Have Been There

The following is in response to Lige Daughtridge candidate for Rocky Mount City Council on his page The Community Council.

Lige Daughtridge It is and has been my pleasure to provide a free service to those who have talked about me out to make a name for myself. What a hell of a price to pay. Thank you!

But Lige finally a truth that many need to recognize and understand that I am a resident of Edgecombe County. I have worked in Rocky Mount for the past 32 years and nearly 6 months. I have been a Edgecombe County Community/Political Activist, Life Member Rocky Mount NAACP since 1992 current 2nd Vice President, Executive Committee Member Edgecombe County Democratic Party since the late 80’s currently Precinct Chair. I have lots of family and friends who live in Rocky Mount. I committed myself to being a voice for the voiceless especially the young and the elderly back in the late 80’s. I get credit for saying things that I hear folk say that are scared to say publicly. I have never wanted for anything.

But Lige when it comes to politics, policies and decision making, I trust and believe in the elected officials until they do things that show they have not done what is in the best interest of the people.

But Lige it is one thing to question and for whoever want to debate what the City Council is doing however it is another to provide half trues, not simplifying the issue one have so that the folk that get scared will know exactly what one mean when they throw out the tax scare tactic. I say scare tactic simply because that is what folk are quick to throw out when trying to get their message across. Some have no clue and some make it appear as if black folk don’t pay taxes.

I respect your concerns and don’t question them, however sometimes I get lost in them. But Lige what I would love to see is you simplify more into depth when you bring up the tax thingy for folk who don’t know the full perspective. The haters they don’t care and don’t even know the full perspective they just be hating.

But Lige over the years can you tell me what the council has done pre the Event Center that has set Rocky Mount back?

But Lige you say, “Thank you for asking and hopefully we can discuss at the next City Council meeting or feel free to contact me so we can discuss this or other topics.” My friend what I want you to do is to simplify it here because this is you page, your platform and etc. Educate!

But Lige what I do is when you and others say things I question those whom you are questioning their motives to get their side and I compare theirs to yours.

I feel you, Bronson Williams, Max Avent, Lindell John Kay my guy, David Farris and a couple of others we had some good conversations while we stood in the hallway as the council were in closed session during the Monday meeting.

Since it has been said that the council was paying me to video, I am still waiting on my check from them but didn’t know they had hired me. I have been attending the meetings longer than anyone on the council and only remember Reuben Blackwell being their and the Attorney. I remember when Andre Knight and Chris Miller came on board at the same time.

My point is folk need to recognize and understand that I have been there and didn’t just get involved over night and damn sure didn’t just because Knight brought me on. Hell I played a part in recruiting him to the NAACP and the council.

I have seen the growth in Rocky Mount since the 90’s because I have been actively engaged.

Don’t Blame Me! This Is Who The Rocky Mount Telegram, The Community Council & Whig-TV Has Chosen For Their Spokesperson (My Ignant Opinion) See The Pattern

Watch Video – Cunningham             Watch Video – Knight

Knight addressed this ignant ass but Cunningham had a problem. Nobody stopped him while he was talking about nothing because the city council ain’t killed no damn body. And Cunningham think he can talk speak again, damn what part of the photo he didn’t understand you don’t get to rebuttal. So this is what it appears The Rocky Mount Telegram, The Community Council and Whig-TV is promoting. But just my ignant opinion. Oh I can’t leave out that ignant ass Rev. Roosevelt Higgs who call in to WHIG-TV and try to discredit the Rocky Mount City Council. Hell yeah this bothers me when these ignant asses try to discredit the entire council although they only call a few names but what they say reflect the whole council. Knight said enough for the rest of them so they didn’t have to address that ignant ass during the meeting.

Rocky Mount City Council/Johnnie Cunningham Drama

Interesting thing is that there have been 6, not five votes for the Downtown Facility Center and the Associated Tax Increase. Only WB has voted no. Yet, for whatever reason, people attacking Chris Miller and seem to ignore Tom and forget that without Miller there will be five, not 4 voting the way Miller did. But there will still be a 4 – 3 black majority.

Them damn racist over there at WHIG-TV and those who post on The Community Council page tickles the hell out of me because they do a damn good job of misleading folk and/or allowing others to call in to or post ignant mess on their page.

It is funny as hell how all they talk about is the Rocky Mount City Council. Well I guess they can’t talk about the Nash County Commissioners meetings because the chair of the commissioners Robbie Davis has purchased much into the buying of WHIG-TV so therefore he is part owner.

Why do these ignants think that Johnnie Cunningham and some others think they can go to the Rocky Mount City Council meetings and think they can make accusations attacking council persons without proof and the council is suppose to allow them to do so. Really?

And then to add more drama to all of this that ignant ass Rev. Roosevelt Higgs call in to WHIG-TV and say ignant mess. Who listens to this ignant ass? Ignant Ass Racist White Folk.

Follow The Community Council And WHIG-TV To See How They Follow The Rocky Mount City Council

It tickles the hell out of me that all they talk about is the Rocky Mount City Council. Look at the name of this site The Community Council ain’t that nothing.

I don’t know who are the funniest them or that WHIG-TV Station. You got to look at their racist morning shows especially after a Rocky Mount City Council meeting.

Johnnie Cunningham is local black male is a favorite on both as he post on the The Community Council facebook page but call in to WHIG-TV quite regularly attempting to discredit Councilman Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell but he can’t.

Rev. Roosevelt Higgs a local black male is a favorite on WHIG-TV regularly and has been trying to discredit Councilman Andre Knight for years even after causing Edgecombe County to pay Knight’s attorney fees when Higgs challenged his residency. This guy is something else because he has lived in the E. L. Roberson Center with his mom for since the flood of 1999 but has been used Speed for his residency. The sad part is the 4 black County Commissioners know this along with some other blacks but they have allowed him to keep messing stirred up even up to recently in March when he attempted to manipulate the appointment of the Edgecombe County Sheriff. This is just a damn shame how these black folk allow this dude to get away with mess attacking black leadership. He has even attacked some if not all of these elected officials but Rocky Mount City Council has been his pet peeve because he was WHIG-TV and some other whites flunky.

It is a damn shame how we allow certain black folk to attempt to discredit our leadership.

Rocky Mount NC – The Rocky Mount Telegram, Fighting Crime, WHIG-TV & The Community Council Do They Really Care About Unifying Rocky Mount Or Do They Just Want Black Folk To Sit Down And Shut Up?

The system is set up so that black folk are scared to speak out even when they are hurting. When you hurt me I am going to let you know. When you hurt other folk and I can see for myself what is going on, I hurt then too. I refuse to be silent on issues that affect folk as a whole.

I look at all of these media outlets and social media sites how they single out certain folk. But most of all I look at the comments and who are not afraid to speak out. Them white folk ain’t scared.

Look at what black folk being speaking out about on social media. Just damn scared until it hit home.

Right now there are 2 things going on on social media that is dear to me, I said to me because I know some of the folk or have been contacted by some of the folk.

In Sharpsburg there is discussion on 252 Hoodnews about black folk (women/young folk) cars being towed that don’t need to be towed when the Sharpsburg Police Department call a local wrecker to get the cars. If the folk don’t pay the money to get cars back they get to sell them. I have been told and it has been stated that when the folk ask to let their cars sit there and they come back to get it or to request to call their own wrecker, they have been denied.

Today in the paper and all those I named above are going after Councilman Andre Knight. Look at the comments who are saying what. Black folk are scared to comment.

Now I understand some black folk are scared to comment because they are scared of retaliation. Well just know that when your time comes, you may need some folk to help you while you were silent while it was happening to others.

This pisses me the hell off because I refuse to be silent. I can’t understand how folk sit back and allow injustice to take place and say nothing.

I will not sit down and shut up even if you come after me. I will stand until the end.

I ain’t mad with nobody, however I will not allow you to promote mess that ain’t right. Tell the whole story!

Rocky Mount NC – Community Facility

It looks like the City Council not the Community Council voted unanimously on moving forward with the progress downtown. Well I guess this dispels the myth that it is an Andre Knight and the black council members thing.

What tickles the hell out of me is all of the comparisons that the Community Council keep putting out there about what other towns are doing and have done and ain’t done. But how in the hell do they know what can be done in Rocky Mount until it is done?

I am proud to know that Victor Vines formerly of Pinetops, NC graduate of South West Edgecombe High School Pinetops NC and NC State University Raleigh NC is one of the architectures that will design the facility.

However Barnhill Contracting another local construction company will be a part of this historical process also.
